  • Biological Cells are spatially organized into membranes, organelles, and cytoskeleton. Cellular physiological function is determined by myriad of biochemical reactions and biophysical processes coordinated in time and space by cellular control mechanisms. Historically cellular biology was mainly an empirical science and compact mathematical modeling theories were rare. Recent progress in computational biophysics and biochemistry as well as wealth of empirical bioinformatics data opened new opportunities in cellular biology. We believe that computational cell biology (CCB) will become the next "killer application" in the scientific computing arena. Read more.
